The Parking Spot:  Bravo Bravo

There are airport parking spots that offer many services and conveniences, that cater to harried passengers boarding planes and coming back from trips. All of these have things going for them. But when it comes to over the top airport parking - -The Parking Spot is in a class by itself.

We experienced Haynes, one of a trio of facilities of The Parking Spot brand in New Jersey. Getting there was an ordeal with the added confusion of flying out of Newark Liberty Airport and having to get there via one of the tunnels running (or should we say crawling) from Manhattan to the Garden State.

We made wrong turns, sat in line slogging through the tunnel, crept along in a weary pace. Then one of us had a bright idea - -call The Parking Spot and get specific directions. A friendly voice answered and stayed with us from our dizzy location in NJ all the way to the front door of The Parking Spot. Service like this is this day and age was (is) truly remarkable.      

Our car was on its way to valet parking and special treatment and we were on our way on the new yellow bus of the Parking Spot for two weeks plus in Europe  on a travel writing trip. It was divine, sunshine and flowers and nice people and world class sights.

Coming home was just the opposite - -the plane landed a bit late due to heavy rain. We got our bags, quite a few of them, and called  the Parking Spot. Within minutes the  new yellow bus arrived. We were a bit wet, a bit jet-lagged and a very tired. No problem. The bus driver told us to go into his clean leather seated vehicle. Relax, he said, I will take care of everything. And he did.

We arrived back at The Parking Spot Haynes. Our car was waiting there for us. The driver took our luggage supply out and loaded it into our auto. They had even placed two cold bottle of  water on our dashboard. Talk about thoughtful. And we were off. 

The entire experience was neater, cleaner, more human and more economical than traditional airport parking and other parking sites.

The motto of the Parking Spot is “We have Airport Parking Covered.” They surely do.
